New Pokémon Snap Preview - Explore the Lental Region

The New Pokémon Snap game for Nintendo Switch comes out this Friday, April 30th and we are so excited.  We were honored to be given an early look at a new interactive site that was not available to the public for the new Pokemon Snap game this past week.  We got to check out the 8 stops where you can explore the Lental Region and discover unknown islands and Pokemon inhabitants through exclusive video clips.

Explore lush scenery on unknown islands to snap photos of Pokémon in their natural habitats. Seek out and take in-game photographs of Pokémon in their native environments in the New Pokémon Snap™ game, only for the Nintendo Switch™ system! Snap photos from the NEO-ONE as you you encounter and research lively wild Pokémon. You might see unexpected expressions or behaviors—Pokémon patrolling their territory, playing, or lurking in out-of-the-way spots. Investigate the mysterious Illumina phenomenon. Travel to the islands that make up the Lental region. In this region, some of the Pokémon and vegetation will appear to have a special glow. Research these Pokémon alongside Professor Mirror as you explore dense jungles, vast deserts, and more! Your observations of Pokémon thriving in the wild may help unravel the truth behind the Illumina phenomenon. The Pokémon pictures you take will be used to build your very own Pokémon Photodex!

Save, edit, and share your favorite Pokémon photos. Save photos to your personal in-game album to edit and adjust them. When you complete a course, you can adjust the brightness, blur, zoom and other aspects of your photo in Re-Snap mode. Then, add stickers, frames, and filters to add a personal touch. Share your favorite photos with family and friends in-game *. You can also see what kinds of photos everyone else is taking. See something you like? Award a Sweet! medal.

This new game brings the gameplay of the 1999 Pokémon Snap game for the Nintendo 64™ system to life on the Nintendo Switch system with unknown islands to discover and different Pokémon to see!

Photograph lively wild Pokémon in their natural habitats as you research and explore unknown islands. Hop in your trusty travel pod, the NEO-ONE, and journey through a variety of environments such as beaches, jungles, and deserts to capture previously-unseen Pokémon behaviors. You can even play a melody or toss Pokémon a delicious fluffruit to catch their attention. Photos you take can also be used to fill out your very own Pokémon Photodex!

Your photos are scored based on the Pokémon’s poses, how large they appear, how directly they’re facing you, and other factors. You may even snap a four star-worthy photo if you catch rare Pokémon behaviors. These scores can be shared via in-game rankings* so you can compare your shots with other Pokémon photographers around the world.

In the Lental region, Pokémon and vegetation have sometimes been seen to glow. Meet Professor Mirror and work with him to uncover the mystery of the Illumina Phenomenon. Your photos and observations may be key to learning about this strange occurrence.

This game will be released on April 30th and you can pre-order the game here.

Here is a full list of every game we have and I highly recommend them all. We love playing Nintendo Switch as a family, the kids enjoy playing together and it is so much fun. I think it is a great console for anyone. I also love that the kids can take it in the car and when we travel. We would be completely lost without our Nintendo Switch and during this difficult year it has brought lots of fun to our home.

I also highly recommend Nintendo Labo kits. It is a fun way to make, play and discover with Nintendo Switch. There are 5 different kits and Carter and Kennedy love them all. It teaches kids to craft and design and make things on their own while using their Nintendo Switch to play!
